“These markets are not simply places with a high number of singles; in fact, the raw share of singles in these markets combined is about the same as the U.S. average,” says Javier Vivas, a realtor.com economic research analyst. “What really distinguishes this set are the more favorable conditions singles face when it comes to home ownership. Some of those right ingredients include solid job creation, rational price appreciation, and varied amounts of affordable inventory.”

The following cities boast 20 to 50 percent more single-owned households compared to the rest of the nation. Also, median list prices are more affordable for residents earning the median income, and unemployment rates are near or less than the national average of 5 percent.
